I turned 33 on November 2. I don’t remember anything special about the day. Maybe I ate cake? Did a coworker insist on paying for me when we went to Pei Wei for lunch? I couldn’t tell you.
Watching the hummingbirds. Well, hummingbird, singular. Only one gets to eat at my feeder because Anna’s Hummingbirds are territorial. If two show up at the same time somebody will get chased off. I don’t know how close is too close — I might put up a second feeder on the opposite corner and see if multiple birds are acceptable. They usually don’t mind the songbirds at the seed feeder. I know are at least 3 that come to my feeder every day, possibly many more, based on their obvious-to-me differences in appearance. I can recognize their sound now, announcing their arrival with a chee-chee-chee-chee.
After I learned that seed birds are greedy filthy little pigs, I only put out seed on the weekend, when I’m more likely to be able to see the birds come by. I’ve added a birdbath, which is just a terra cotta saucer with an inch or so of water. I haven’t seen anybody splashing around in it, yet, although I did witness a black bird drinking out of it. Maybe the bird bath will become more popular as the months heat up.
